That's how fantasy football goes. Matchups and injuries play a big role in head to head leagues. Sometimes you need to get lucky; like Stamper.
My team had a good week even with a first half injury. Total points are a tiebreaker for getting into the playoffs, so I'll gladly take my 112 points. I'm not sure I even scored 100 last year.
It was a pretty great match. Don't know if anyone was paying attention but we were tied going into the Raiders/Chargers game. I had denarius moore who was scratched at the last second (ok, hour) and I had to pick up one of the available WR in that game. All of them were garbage but I was able to get 1 point from Eddie Royal to win the match...
Well! I went to check out my team this morning and, apparently I won! They added an extra point to my score which gave me the 1-point win. I was trying to figure out who they added it to but I can't remember the old scores. So...sweet!
Look at my wideouts. I flipped Antonio Brown for Spiller with Cbats, and now Maclin is hurt. I need a third receiver bad, and I can only start two RBs. I hate not having a flex position in this league.
Also: it looks like it won't go through until too late, so it won't matter for this week.
Also also: I own Spiller in my other league, so I was okay getting rid of him.
Also also also: Spiller won't keep getting all these touches forever - Fred Jackson will start splitting time with him in a couple of weeks. People are saying Spiller is the new Chris Johnson, but I'm not convinced.

He is the top wideout on that team, unless you count Vernon Davis. Problem is that Alex Smith doesn't throw for a lot of yards. I think he has thrown for over 300 yards once or twice in his whole career. Same with Crabs. Being the homer that I am, I've had Crabs on a fantasy team of mine since he came into the league and he's never been a good producer. Crabs has maybe one or two 100 yard games in his career and he's maybe gotten me over 15 points a couple of times. You could have and SHOULD HAVE got Cruz in that trade.
I dunno, I think Spiller might be cursed in our league. I traded him so I could sell high before FJ came back and I had 3 other startable running backs. This week, Bradshaw's basically dead and then J-Stew decided not to play either. Now I'm looking at a nice gooseegg at a position where I thought I had an insane amount of depth. Oh well...
I have no idea who to start with my final RB spot, Ryan Matthews (who should be healthy for the game), Jamaal Charles or maybe Ben Tate? I'm leaning towards Mathews, but does anyone have any suggestions?...anyone except Gibbons of course.
